Personally I think a white bouquet doesn’t pop enough off of a white dress. I would go with the color(s) that move you. Look through lot’s of pics on Google and The Knot and wherever else you can find them. Blue is a good idea, then you could get some fun blue shoes to go with it!

I am going traditional with deep red roses, classic.

I wanted absolutely no white! However, I’ve since changed my mind (big surprise there!! haha!) and now I am doing mostly color with some ivory flowers.

What are your colors? That would be a good place to start…

I wanted a colored bouquet at first too.  I changed my mind when I changed our color scheme.  Mine was about 90% white and ivory with about 10% green.  The green made it pop a little from the dress.

@oracle: Are you having bridesmaids? What color are their dresses?

Deep, warm colors would be great for your fall (Oct) wedding.

While white bouquets are beyond gorgeous and elegant, I personally agree that the pop of color of vibrant bouquets is lovely too!

I agree with animated_librarian , the color adds some pop, otherwise I feel that the dress and flower blend together too much. Either way, it looks gorgeous tho!

Go with color! So much more fun and really pops in pictures. I was gonna ask what your colors are but sounds like you don’t really have a color theme. You really can’t go wrong with red. Or for a little more color you could go with reds and oranges for an autumn-y feel since your wedding is in October.

I am doing a winter wedding so I am doing an all white bouquet! It really depends on your theme and colors of your wedding. I am having my bridesmaids with blue bouquets and mine is going to be so mine will pop out….maybe you can try that!

My bouquet is red and black. Black magic roses, karma chocolate dahlias, black feathers and those curly fern fronds.

What about using a white flower with a colored center?

There are also lots of breeds of roses that are two-toned.

My daughter was going to have a colored bouquet right up until the end…the florist had an all white one on his new brochure that she fell in love with…the florist also mentioned that a white bouquet will never go out of style or look trendy.  Looking back, I’m glad she did white as the bridesmaid’s colored bouquets weren’t quite the colors she envisioned and she would have been disappointed if her bouquet was the same color as thiers…
